COVID-19: NEWS UPDATE - 17/02/2021

  • Guidance explaining how to book a place in a quarantine hotel and arrange coronavirus (COVID-19) tests if you’re travelling to England from a country on the banned travel list or Scotland from any country outside the CTA.
  • Exemptions from the requirement to take a COVID test on day 2 ad 8 of quarantine apply to eligible seasonal agricultural workers who are quarantining on the farm on which they work and live.
  • Transport operators are required to ensure that passengers travelling to England by sea, air or rail from outside the common travel area are provided with information about coronavirus, and related duties and public health guidance. This updated guidance explains the changed requirements as a result of the requirement for passengers to have a managed quarantine facility and tests on days 2 and 8 of their quarantine booked prior to departure to England.
  • Local councils in England are offering rapid lateral flow tests to people who do not have symptoms of coronavirus.  Around 1 in 3 people have coronavirus without displaying any symptoms, therefore regular testing for people with no symptoms will help to find positive cases earlier and break chains of transmission.  Tests are free and you get a result 30 minutes after taking the test.  Enter your postcode to find your nearest test centre.
